Chemistry, the systematic study of matter in the universe, has many different facets to it. A minor in Chemistry offers students the opportunity to explore a number of the diverse areas in this "central" science. For some students who have fulfilled chemistry pre-med requirements, the minor can be fulfilled by taking just two additional courses; however, in accordance with university policy, a student may count no more than one course toward both a major and a minor
The minor in Chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences consists of six courses:
||General Chemistry or the equivalent (CH 109-110 or CH 117-118, with associated laboratories)
||Additional chemistry courses. Normally, two of the four courses would be Organic Chemistry I and II with associated laboratories, but other selections might be better choices, depending on the student’s objective in attaining the minor.
The following courses for non-science majors cannot be used to complete the minor: CH102 Intersection of Science and Painting, CH 105 Chemistry and Society I, CH 106 Chemistry Society II, CH 107 Frontiers in Life Sciences, CH 161 Life Science Chemistry or CH170 The Ethical Scientist. The following research courses cannot be used to complete the minor: CH 391-392 Undergraduate Research I and II, CH 591-592 Intro to Chemistry Research I and II or CH593-594 Intro to Biochemistry Research I and II.
Courses are to be chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor and approved by the Director, Professor Lynne O’Connell (Merkert 125D, ext. 2-3626, firstname.lastname@example.org
